F E E L: Rust & Bone
Rust & Bone is an emotionally poignant romance starring one of my favorite actresses, Marion Cotillard- I highly recommend this film, one of my favorites of 2012. I recently downloaded the soundtrack and am feeling it big time, reliving old favorites, and inspired by the new, including the beautifully composed instrumentals, that take me back to this stunningly curated film of life and love. Check it out xx

H U R R Y: to chelsea xx
There are only two days left (March 22 & 23) to see the most enchanting multimedia art exhibition I’ve experienced this year- Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s The Visitors, showing at Luhring Augustine. This nine-channel video installation involving durational musical performance was staged upstate New York at Rokeby Farm. It depicts individual creative minds at work and a baring of extreme collective emotion. The first time I saw it I was taken aback, having had a rough week I felt beads of tears collect in my eyes and an overwhelming sense of comfort. The second time this week, I was reminded of how these simple beautiful images accompanied by soft sweet music affected me so positively. Maybe it’ll touch you too! Enjoy xx

Since watching the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, the story about a musical legend who never knew his influence or fame, I have a new love- Rodriguez!!! Until you’re able to watch this amazing story, have a listen to this beautiful, soulful voice of a Detroit based star who only relatively recently learned the pervasiveness of his light on the other side of the world xx

C A F F E I N A T E : Abraço Espresso Bar
Abraço, which means ‘hug’ in Portuguese is a sweet little spot to get your caffeine kick and perhaps a treat. The other day I went to this East Village stand up cafe for a cappuccino and olive oil cake (delicious). Treat YOURSELF here too!
